You Are A Work Of Art
Eight years ago, I began a project to share the stories of strangers in the New York City subway. I told these stories through candid portraits drawn on-the-spot and drawn on the way.
Drawn On The Way is a celebration of the people and moments we often overlook in the rush of our day-to-day lives. It is a reminder to find the extraordinary in the everyday and a daily reminder that each one of us, just as we are, is worthy of being seen and worthy of being transformed into art.
Now, with my daily subway commute and other adventures on hold, I want to tell the stories of another extraordinary set of strangers.
And I need your help to do it.
The healthcare, food service, sanitation and other essential workers who are keeping the world safe and running; the people who are at the frontlines of this pandemic. I'd like to thank them and share their stories in the best way I know how, by turning them into works of art.
If you would like to nominate an essential worker (including yourself) to have their portrait drawn (and share their story), please fill out this form.
